Current GED test to expire in December

Residents in program encouraged to finish

MANISTIQUE – The current version of the GED test will expire on Dec. 31, 2013, according to the North Menominee County Community Schools Adult Education. The program serves residents of Schoolcraft, Delta, and Menominee counties

The current version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on Jan. 2, 2014.

Those who have begun the 2002 Series GED tests, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass. If the test is not completed, students will need to start over in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive the credential.

“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Kim Harris, adult education coordinator. “So we want to be sure that everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.

Support is available,” she continued. “We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass. Free preparation classes are held four nights per week at four locations throughout Delta, Menominee, and Schoolcraft Counties. These sites are testing centers as well. Enrollment is open now.”
